Light and fit has the lowest calories per ounce, the best taste, and the best flavors out there. Any issues with aspartame have been blown way out of proportion. The other reviewer's claims have been mostly debunked:

I saw the commercials for this yogurt and decided to try a 6 pack. Shame on me I know better than to be swayed by advertisements... So I get my pack home and try the blueberry flavor, something isn't right with the taste. After eating the yogurt I was left with a strange bitter medicine like aftertaste in my mouth. So then I check the ingredients. Sure enough this yogurt is made with artificial sweetener, and not the healthy kind like Splenda. No sir, this is made with Aspartame a sweetener known to cause poisoning as well as this list of side effects:

I think it is terrible that Dannon would sell a food with this ingredient, when there are safe alternatives available. Think of all the unsuspecting consumers that do not read labels, or have no idea this ingredient could be potentially dangerous to them, or their children. I will never eat these yogurts again and neither should anyone who cares about the health of their body.
